Once again the heart of design beated in Madrid. Between 27th and 31st March all the eyes focused on 360 Interiorhome and Casaparalela exhibitions that offered a contemporary vision on what is happening right now in design and decoration.

360 Intriorhome, the new fair project designed by IFEMA for the furniture and exclusive decoration sector, brought together the new features of more than one hundred Spanish and foreign exhibitors in a 11,500 m2 exhibition area. Based on the concepts of interior design, architecture and window-dressing, it was launched with success and created high expectations for the future.

Casaparalela, for the fifth consecutive year, spred a fresh air in town and involved a series of activities in order to promote young and innovative designers, including the sections known as Econciencia, Abecedario Designer's Market and Low-Cost Design as well as the Fist International Contract and Cutting-Edge Architecture Congress. In its 10,200 m2 exhibition area, Casaparalela offered a voice to an entirely new generation of designers, together with their ideas designed to boost competitiveness through the incorporation of a new sense of creativity.

One could easily perceive the enthusiasm of the visitors getting in touch with the passion of the young talents that created an atmosphere of fervor and joyfulness, very Spanish indeed! Based on a similar desire to create a strong sense of synergy, the Fist International Contract and Cutting-Edge Architecture Congress was attended by a series of professionals who analyzed the latest trends, ideas and designs within the contract sector.
